My dad was […]

We shall not live as “Prisoners but as Colonists”

We shall not live as “Prisoners but as Colonists.” That is the phrase C.S. Lewis once used in his book “The Problem of Pain” to speak about the church’s approach to the suffering of the world.

A Thankful Place! How About a Sweet Story for Our Anxious Days?

By Tony Tench Last week Janet and I went to a marriage conference at Erin’s and Matt’s church. We decided to get a room on Friday so we didn’t have to drive the whole way on Saturday. We had a very small window to see the grandchildren as we were to care for them while Erin and Matt ran an errand before heading to next things.  We pulled up just in time to take them by […]

In the Heart of Washington, He Raised an Ebenezer!
